Poirier Vincent H. Poirier The Boston Globe 12/5/1986 dg052 CAPT. VINCENT H. POIRIER, AT 89; HAD SAILED ALL OVER THE WORLD Vincent H. Poirier was 13 when he ventured out of Poirierville on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, to find his fortune. He went on to lead a seagoing life of adventure.Capt. Poirier was 89 when he was found dead in his home in the neighboring town of D'Escousse Friday morning. After a colorful career of over 50 years at sea, he had died in his sleep.According to his son, Rev. Vincent H. Poirier Jr., associate pastor of St. Mary's Church in Franklin, Capt. Poirier "literally had sailed all over the world.""As a youngster, he sailed first with a famous old English company, the Black Diamond Line. He shipped out as a fireman, shoveling coal in sweaty firerooms of transatlantic freight and passenger steamers," his son recalled.During the 1920s, he signed on with crews of former United Fruit Line ships out of Boston, sailing to Central and South American ports. He stayed with United Fruit, his son said, halfway through World War II. "He worked his way up to the deck . . . sailing for several months at time as a fireman. Then he'd come ashore to study for his certificate to become a licensed officer," his son said. After passing the license exam in 1939, Capt. Poirier obtained master's licenses in Canada and the United States. During the war, Capt. Poirier became skipper of the SS Casimir Polaski, a Liberty ship that survived a number of attacks. The Polaski was part of the Allied armada that invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944. Later, Capt. Poirier was skipper of the SS Francis D. Ogden. After the D-Day invasion, Capt. Poirier became a captain with the Boston-based Sprague Steamship Co. He sailed throughout the Pacific with Sprague until the war ended. During those years, his son recalled, Capt. Poirier's ships carried many dangerous cargoes, including gasoline, oil and munitions. "The ships had Navy crews to man the few guns on board . . . Once, he brought home a piece of shrapnel from a bomb that had exploded near his ship. It landed on deck near him," Rev. Poirier said. After the war, Capt. Poirier skippered Sprague Co. colliers along the Atlantic Seaboard, to and from Boston, and also to Europe. He retired in 1965 to his home in Quincy's Wollaston section, where he lived with his wife, the former Cecelia Poirier. In the late 1970s, they moved to D'Escousse. Mrs. Poirier died in January 1984, after 53 years of marriage. Besides his son, Capt. Poirier leaves a daughter, Annette Sexton of Norwell, and five grandchildren. Rev. Poirier will say a funeral Mass for his father at 3 p.m. today in St. Hyacinth's Church, D'Escousse.Social Security Death Index: Name Birth Death Last Residence Last Benefit SSN Issued VINCENT POIRIER 05 Dec 1897 May 1986 XX953 (U.S. Consulate: CANADA) (none specified) 081-20-4621 New York

Four Killed When Great Wireless Mast Crashed Down

Shocking Tragedy at Marconi Towers

Near Glace Bay - Fell 120 Feet - Three Instantly Killed

GLACE BAY, July 8 - Four men, Norman MacRURY, Hugh CONNINGTON, A. KELLY and M. POPE, were killed at noon yesterday at the Marconi Towers, near Glace Bay.

The men belonged to Louisbourg. They were erecting a steel mast and were in a cage 120 feet from the ground when the mast collasped. An official investigation to determine the cause of the collaspe of the tower will be conmended Monday afternoon at Glace Bay, by Coroner P.E. Ogilvie.

About the same hour Louisbourg will witness one of the saddest, the four coffins of the victims, scenes in her long history, when Norman MacRury, Hugh Connington, M. Pope and A. Kelly will be carried in a common funeral procession to their last resting place.

Up to the present time nothing official has been given the public as to the reason of the accident beyond the obvious information that the failure of an important part of the structural steel frame precipitated the catastrope.

The four men were structural steel workers, and specialists in the erection of wireless towers of the lattice type. They were engaged in extending an old mast to a height of 310 feet. They had reached a height of 180 feet at noon, Saturday, and were working at that level, when without warning, some of the structural steel at the ninety foot buckled and the upper half of the mast toppled over and fell to the ground, carrying the workmen down in a tangle of girders.

The tower did not break off completely, but buckled and fell over, its appearance after the accident being much the same, as that of a straw bent double. The lower half of the mast remained verticle, the upper half sloping at an angle down to the ground. When assistance arrived it was found that Connington, Kelly and Pope had been killed instantly, MacRury lived for about an hour after the accident. All four were badly crushed and mutilated by the steel. MacRury was the only married man of the four, all of whom belonged to Louisbourg. This is said to be the first accident of its kind in the history of the Marconi Co., in Canada. The four victims had been engaged in similiar work for years and were well known in wireless circles in Cape Breton for their skill in their different occupations. A special train on the Sydney and Louisbourg Railway carried the bodies to their home in Louisbourg.

Passed away on: 31/05/2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jamie on May 31, 2010. After a short, but, brave battle with cancer, he died peacefully with family by his side.
Jamie was born in Sydney, N.S., and lived his adult life in the Halifax area.
Jamie lived life with uncurbed enthusiasm and will be remembered fondly by his jokes, love of people, music, cards, sport and a good time. He dedicated his life to his daughters, his pride and joy, being the best father possible. His best hours were spent with family and friends. He was a great father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be in our hearts forever.
Jamie worked at the Department of Transportation, Infrastructure Renewal, for almost 36 years where he made many close friends. He played hockey up until the onset of his illness, and was the life of the dressing room after the game. Golf was his summer passion, spending many days at Oakfield with his good friends.
Jamie was the son of Rita (MacPhee) Potter and the late Frank Sr. of Sydney. Besides his mother, he is survived by his daughters, Danielle and Michelle, their mother, Donna Potter (Belliveau); brothers, Gardiner (Jean) Sydney, Frank (Marion), Sydney, and Rob (Lisa), Dartmouth; sisters, Linda Shaw (Ron), Sydney, and Colleen Robbins (Jon), Halifax; as well as many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Jamie's family doctor, Dr. John McNab, Dr. Rosalynn Hayman, ND, continuing care co-ordinator, the palliative care team, Barb Stewart and other nurses, physicians, and the compassionate nurses at the VG on 7A and close friends and neighbours.
He is gone but certainly not forgotten.
His remains will be cremated and funeral service will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday, June 3, 2010, at St. John Vianney Church, 4 Beaverbank Rd., Lower Sackville. A reception will follow at the church hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of Donald 'Donnie' Thomas Pottie, 57, of Onoway, Alta., and formerly of Sydney who passed away Saturday, Oct. 2, 2010. Donnie was a jack of all trades and in his younger days was a cab driver in Sydney which he enjoyed very much. All his clients loved him, especially the elderly who would go for groceries and  always requested Donnie. He would make sure their groceries were brought right to their kitchens. Donnie was a member of the St. Theresa's Men's Club, a church usher and he chaperoned many dances at St. Theresa's Hall. Donnie's passion was fishing with his father in the Margaree River, a place of solace he found so dear. When he married and moved to Edmonton, he later became a liaison officer and voice for Families First, an organization that advocated for challenged individuals' rights. There was nothing he  would not do to help those in need. He will especially be missed by his physically challenged daughter, Sarah, whom he spent his days with. He was Sarah's' favourite person in the world and  his loss will be especially felt by her. He never stopped teaching Sarah new things. Donnie is survived by his wife, Anne; daughters, Ester, Eden and Sarah; and two sons Aaron and Matthew. He will be sadly missed by his siblings, Faye McIntosh, Dartmouth, Sandra Cormier  (Rich), East Bay, Eileen Forrester (Wally), Sydney, Terrance, Ontario, and Jo-Anne Binns, Sydney. He is also survived by many grandchildren, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Capt. Joseph Pottie and Eileen Pottie, brother, Joseph Maurice and son, Kelly. Donnie has generously donated his body to science. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time. Donations may be made to a charity of one's choice.   10/2/2010 Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada

Alexander 'Pi'kun' Poulette (Feather)
Born In: Sydney
Passed on: February 21st, 2013
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Alexander ‘Pi’kun’ Poulette on Feb. 21, 2013.
Born in Sydney, he was a son of the late Joseph and Susan (Denny) Poulette.
Pi’kun’s earliest musical influence was his brother, Jimmy David Poulette. Before each major performance, he would offer up a prayer to his brother and to his mother Susan for strength to get through the performance.
For 45 years, Pi’kun and Gutch Poulette, as Morningstar, entertained not only the Mi’kmaq community, but the public at large. He played with Lee Cremo for many years and the pair would swap stories on their way to the next gig. He was a sought after speaker and freely shared his experiences about the Indian Residential School.
His song “Forgiveness” earned Morningstar an East Coast Music Award and brought tremendous healing to all survivors of the residential school. Pi’kun played at countless benefits and freely gave of his time.
He was also a member of the Sante Mawiomi choir and was a special friend of the St. Anne’s Mission in Chapel Island, and Ste Anne de Beaupre in Quebec. He was also a carpenter by trade and was gifted in the art of making cabinets.
Pi’kun had a special love for the Mi’kmaq people and would frequently refer to them as “my people.”
Our loss is the loss of the entire Mikmaq community but it is heaven’s gain. We also believe he is jamming with Jimmy David Poulette, Tommy Bernard and Lee Cremo and the rest of heaven’s choir.
Pi’kun is survived by wife, Margaret (Johnson); daughter, Tracey (Kenny) Poulette, Sydney; stepsons, Kyle, Jonah and Terrance Gloade, all of Chapel Island; sisters, Elizabeth Sacobie, Fredericton, Evangeline (Richard) Landry, Amherst, Geraldine (Jack) Smith, Amherst; brother, Thomas George Poulette, Eskasoni; grandchildren, Susan Marianne, Jordyn Evangeline, Koby Alexander; several godchildren, nieces and nephews. Also survived by his first wife, Pauline Loft and her daughter, Jessica Thompson; in-laws, John D and Agnes Johnson; sisters-in-law, Donna Lameman, Darlene (Gally) Paul, Diane (Kenny) Basque, Lorena (John) Tracey, Trina (Terry) Denny and Lynn (Geoff) Boyce; brothers-in-law, Jr., Dwayne, Darrell (Amanda) and Claude Johnson, all of Chapel Island.
Pi’kun was a friend of Bill W. and will be greatly missed by his special friends, Richard ‘Gutch’ Poulette, Binchey Stevens, Loppy Herney and Gally Denny.
He was predeceased by sisters, Irene and Annie Marie (in infancy), brothers, James David and Alfred (in infancy), second wife, Deborah Stevens.
Visitation will begin after 7 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the Gabriel Centre, Eskasoni. A funeral mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at Holy Family Church, Eskasoni, Rev. Martin MacDougall will officiate, interment in parish cemetery.

Power Mary Alexandrina 'Mae' (MacNeil) Power Cape Breton Post 11/5/2009
Mary Alexandrina (Mae) Power, St. Peter's

Born in 23/09/1916 at Gardiner Mines , Nova Scotia , Canada

The late Mae Power passed away peacefully on the morning of Nov. 2, 2009, at the Richmond Villa nursing home, St. Peter’s, N.S.
Born in Gardiner Mines, N.S., she was the daughter of James and Minnie (MacCormack) MacNeil.
She was predeceased by her husband, William Power and her daughter, Judy Graham.
She is survived by her son, Paul Power (Shirley), British Columbia; three grandsons, Stuart, Trevor and Jordan, Ontario; her sister, Catherine (Kaye) Chisholm, Neils Harbour; and brother, Stanley MacNeil, Ontario.
Mae was one of only two girls in a family of 14 and was predeceased by four brothers who died in infancy, Adrian, James, John and Joseph. She was also predeceased by brothers, Andrew, Charles (Chas), Alphonsus (Phonse), Michael, Peter, Gregory and Ignatius.
Mae moved to Ontario with her sister Kay during the Second World War and worked in a munitions plant as her part in the war effort. She married William Power of Whitby, Ont., and helped him run a large dairy farm until his death in the 1970s. She subsequently returned home to Cape Breton where she resided with her sister for a number of years until she entered the MacGillivray Guest Home and later the Richmond Villa.
A warm and loving person Mae will ever be remembered for the acts of kindness she performed throughout her life. Her thoughts were always for the care and comfort of other people. Mae had many hardships to overcome, especially the death of her mother when Mae was six and the family was for the most part separated, the untimely death of her beloved daughter Judy, the sudden demise of her husband Bill, and her own personal struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was able to meet these challenges without resentment, and indeed, strove only to make the world a better place for those around her. In this, she was always successful.
The family would like to thank the staffs of both the Richmond Villa and MacGillivray nursing homes for the solicitude with which they treated Mae over an 11-year period. Mae Power will be lovingly remembered for her gentle and generous spirit by all who had the privilege to know her.
Her ashes will be interred with her husband in Pickering, Ont.

Born In: North Sydney
Passed in: Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: October 13th, 2013
Passed away at his home in Caledon, Ont., on Oct. 13, 2013, at the age of 83.
Brother to Thomas, Lewis, Anne, Edith and the late Joseph. Husband to the late Patricia Joy Price and spouse to Geraldine Anne Hurshman and missed by her children Tina and Danny. Father of James III, David, John and the late Mary Price. Beloved by his nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
‘Jimmy’ was born and raised during the Depression in North Sydney, N.S. As the oldest child, he was a natural leader, a true force of nature and was gifted with a mechanical aptitude that would later leave more than a few professional engineers in awe. Moving to Toronto with his family in the late 40s, ‘Jimmy’ was an early member of local 46 (Plumbers and Steamfitters) and went on to own and operate a number of contracting businesses, including Master Mechanical and Industrial Contractors Ltd. His company maintained an engineering sales office in Toronto, a metal fabrication shop in Bolton, and built many projects in Toronto, London and Windsor.
Never happy unless he had a pet project to tinker with, ‘Jimmy’ built the first machine to be certified for automated high pressure pipe welding in Canada. Although there were many ‘ups and down’ in the fortunes of his business, ‘Jimmy’ never knelt before any man nor missed an opportunity to lift another man up when he could. ‘Jimmy’ was 100 per cent authentic, original and the product of a unique time and place. We will not see his like again.
A memorial service will be held at the Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South, Aurora, Ont., 905-727-5421 on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at 3 p.m. with visitation from 2 p.m.

Janet M. Probert
Born In: West Middle River
Passed on: February 15th, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Janet Probert, on Feb. 15, 2013, at the Northside General Hospital.
Janet was born in West Middle River, and was the daughter of the late William and Rachel (MacQuarrie) Probert.
She is survived by one brother, William (Pat) Probert, North Sydney; one sister, Laura Smith, North Sydney; nieces, Louise Smith, Sydney Mines, and Donna Kalyn, Mississauga; nephew, Brian Probert, Ottawa; and many grandnieces and nephews, and the special members of her ‘extended family’ from Little Narrows.
She was predeceased by her brothers, Alexander and Donald.
Janet received her early education in West Middle River, going to Baddeck Academy for grades 11 and 12, and after a brief time teaching, attended Nova Scotia Normal College, graduating in 1948. Janet spent 42 years in education, over half in Little Narrows and the last 12 years as curriculum supervisor for the Northside-Victoria School Board.
During her career she continually sought renewal, both academic and personal, by seeking out and attending educational training and study opportunities, both locally and abroad. Janet was a member of the Canadian College of Teachers and the Primary Elementary Teacher’s Association of both Nova Scotia and Australia. She received a life membership to the Nova Scotia Teacher’s College. Evidence of Janet’s dedication and commitment to her academic pursuits can be found in the numerous awards and distinctions she received.
Janet was awarded the Centennial Medal, in 1967, in recognition of valuable service to the nation; the Education Quality Award, in 1977, from the Nova Scotia Teacher’s Union; the Curriculum in the Canadian Context award from UCCB in 1984, for recognition of her valuable contribution to teaching and curriculum development; the prestigious George C. Croskery award, from the Canadian College of Teachers in 1986, given for nationally recognized achievement and service in education in Canada; the International Reading Association’s Literacy award in 1988, for her contribution in developing and promoting literacy in the province, and the distinguished Canadian Red Cross citation in 1982, in recognition of outstanding voluntary service in the organization, and leadership of youth groups of the Canadian Red Cross.
Although Janet retired in 1989, she continued to have a keen interest in the changes and developments within the field of education.
Janet had a very strong sense of family and placed great importance in time spent with them. Janet was a member of Middle River United Church and adherent of Carman United Church in Sydney Mines. Her attendance and work within the church was very important to her. Janet also took great pride in her work with seniors, supporting their recreational and leisure activities. Janet maintained a keen interest in sports, especially baseball, hockey and curling. She found great pleasure in Scottish concerts and music. Janet’s values may be attested to by her accomplishments in her career, her love of children and the importance she placed on family and friends. Janet’s good works will undoubtedly live on, but for those who knew her, they have lost an educator, mentor, benefactor and a true friend.
Visitation for Janet will be held Tuesday, Feb. 19 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at MacAskill’s Funeral Home, 43 Grant St., Baddeck, N/S. Funeral service will be held Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. in Middle River United Church with reception to follow. Burial will take place at a later date.

He was born eighty-three years ago at West River, Antigonish County, son of Alexander Pushie and Margaret Dewar. At the age of 18 years he joined the service of the Eastern Extension Railway then completed between New Glasgow and Mulgrave, and fourteen years after he became a Conductor. He was thus one of the eldest conductors in the railway service in Nova Scotia, and retired in 1926. His wife was Isabel Flemming of Stellarton and he is survived by two sons, Clarence, C.N.R. superintendant at Bridgewater, and Sernie in the railway service at Mulgrave, and three daughters, Mrs. William Kerr, Stellarton, Mrs. F.M.

The late Nathan Pushie was a long time member of Albion Lodge, AF and AM, New Glasgow, and a few years ago was made recipient of a 50 year jewel. More recently he became a member of Temple Lodge, Mulgrave. To few men was it privileged to come in contact with so many people during a long and active life, and he made friends with everybody. He was always held in the highest esteem and to know Nathan Pushie was to like and respect him. He was a staunch friend, and no one enjoyed friends more than Nathan Pushie. He will be missed, but his memory for his kindly acts, his friendships and the fine manner of man that he was will long be remembered. A few weeks ago he experienced a severe heart attack from which it was felt he was recovering when a second attack brought on death and shocked the home community with its sadness, and as the word of his passing reached people it was the occasion of many kindly tributes to the memory of the man who was so well known to thousands. The funeral takes place tomorrow at 2 o'clock from the residence of his son-in-law Wm. Kerr, Stellarton. Interment will be at Riverside cemetery, New Glasgow.
